Some people used to have difficulty adjusting to digital progressive lenses at first because of minor aberrations in the lenses.  Peripheral aberrations can make you slightly dizzy if you make fast head movements or if you look too far to your left or right.  The good news is that recent technology has improved these aberrations dramatically and few experience these effects anymore.
